i would sell now because he is going to have a bunch more autos in other sets, and ginter hype is pretty high too, imo just do a .99 auction and let it ride

Get the thing graded and let it come back a 9.5 BGS...Then you will get a premium for it and it will sell for around 1200...it will only cost you 45 bucks to get it graded and if something happens it doesn't turn out a 9.5 or better you could always break it out of the case pretty easy.

This really doesn't make a lot of sense. Grading best serves its purpose when there is a large population of the cards and you want yours to stand out above the rest or there are well known flaws with the production of cards and you happened to get an exceptionally clean one (for example this 2010 Bowman Chrome ). While BGS 9.5/10's certainly carry a premium I highly doubt it will significantly increase the value on the Pacquiao auto.

A&G doesn't seem like a set to me where condition is ever really an issue since the mini itself is basically encased in the card so grading shouldn't make that much of a difference. On the flip side, I'd imagine people would be more willing to open their wallets for a 9.5/10

Sell it now, then I hope you get a scumbag buyer who will put a chargeback on you and you lose the money and the card. No one here is going to go out of their way to help you with your "searched" pacman card.

The fact you search the packs when you buy them makes you a douchebag. No one likes to or wants to hear your stories. It pisses people off in here that pay good money and enjoy the hobby. The fact that you do not see what's wrong inherently with what you do is a even bigger problem.

The one bright spot of your video is that from the background of your video you appear to live in some sort of trailer or dilapidated house. So hopefully karma is already playing a small part in all this.

Really has nothing to do about when he got to wal-mart, it's what he did at wal-mart which is what you are failing to see...

Isn't this how these threads always end? Guy pulls a big hit by packsearching. Gets nailed by everyone here for packsearching despite several attempts to justify it. Gets friend to come on forum to defend said packsearching. Everyone still nails them, friend & packsearcher eventually get frustrated and just leave.

One thing I will say in defense of the OP. From his videos it all seems pretty innocent like it's the thing to do. Maybe he just doesn't know how looked down on this type of behavior is in the hobby. If the responses he has gotten from his posts does anything to change his view towards pack searching then that would be a good thing. Who knows though?

Packsearchers are douchbags who are just stealing from the children who go to walmart/target with their mothers begging to get packs with hopes of pulling something nice which in turn would hepl make them a lifetime collector like us. Moral of the story Packsearching hurts the future of the hobby,

EXACTLY... i couldn't tell you how many times my gf's kid and i bought packs and got nothing, thanks to people like this bunghole. until finally one day i saw some guy doing it, then wised up, started going to the local card shop. good place to make friends if you don't pack search.

Can the packs in the blasters be searched? Like re-sealing?

If so, that makes me even less comfortable buying retail.

I am going to win that card if it goes to auction and then file a credit card charge back so I can scam the scam artist pack searcher. And isnt it convenient he couldn't find that topic. It's amazing how stupid people think the world wont catch on.

I'm sure what ever meth you have cooking in your bathroom will burn your trailer and card down long before he wins anything.

Amen...also, how long did it take you to figure out that Manny Puh-cay-oh was a boxer?

Right because that is a great plan. When you get charged with a felony, I hope he uses this as evidence against you, because this post alone would probably bury you. Let the pack-searcher do his thing, it's not like anything you, me, or anyone else will say will get him to change his ways.

I'm already watching his auction under one of my 4 dummy Ebay accounts . Good luck trying to catch me if I win this card using this post. The internet is a tricky tricky place. Packsearcher justice is coming!!!!! If I were you I;d pull that auction down and let the heat cool off. Maybe create a new Ebay account to sell it with. Wow what a can of worms you have opened .

ASIDE from the fact that you did pack search, I'll try to answer the question as best I can. I don't think you should get the card graded. You'll rarely find ginter cards graded, and when they are, the added value barely matches the $45 BGS graded fee. I'd also advise you to sell now. The ginger hype is nearing it's end, and you could actually LOSE money if you wait until mannys next fight to sell. Nonetheless, pack searching in no case is acceptable, nor will it ever be. I don't wish death to you like some of these other people do, I just hope you understand you did something quite neglected in the card collecting community. You made a mistake, and you'll have to face the concequences.
